Camaro tuner Baldwin Motion takes fast to a new level!

Not satisfied with the power in the Camaro SS? Invest some coin in a Baldwin Motion tuning kit and achieve up to 800hp!

Baldwin Motion is looking to benefit from the resurgence of Chevy‘s new Chamaro, launching five different models with horsepower figures ranging anywhere from 525-hp to 800-hp, all based on the Camaro SS. Dubbed the “Fantastic Five”, the base model is SS-427, next up is the Phase III 427 then the SS-454, Phase III 454 and last but not least, the Phase III 427-SC.

Following the naming designation, each Camaro SS is powered by either GM’s LS7 427 powerplant or their LSX 454 engine. Hit the source to see specs on each and every model, but it’s worth highlighting the Phase III 427-SC that takes the Camaro SS to an impressive 800-hp. Baldwin Motion supercharges a fully built GM’s LS7 427 engine with a 2.8L twin-screw supercharger. The heads are also completely redone with a custom Redline R3-SC blower camshaft to up high-end horsepower.

The vehicle is slated to be featured in the annual Neiman Marcus Christmas Book – a catalog of high-end goodies for the ruling class. Only 100 examples of the Neiman Marcus Camaro Convertible will be sold through the catalog, each wearing special Deep Bordeaux paint and boasting drivetrain components borrowed from the mighty Camaro SS. That means there’s a full 426 horsepower on tap. Inside, GM has slathered the cockpit in leather touches only available on this special edition.

Camaro tops Mustang again

Looks like the old rivalry between the Mustang and Camaro is back in full swing with the Camaro beating the Mustang for 5 straight months. We’ll check back next summer to see what the battle looks like! The real winners here are the consumers with a choice between 2 fabulous rides!

The Camaro outsold the Mustang by more than 3,000 last month — the fifth month in a row that Chevy outsold Ford since bringing back the storied car this spring.

Per the Detroit Free Press:

The battle between the two cars has been raging since the original Camaro went on sale in 1966 as a rival to the Mustang, which had launched two years earlier.

GM officials say the Camaro might even outsell the Mustang this year, which would be the first time it topped the Mustang since 1985. Through October, GM has sold 47,233 Camaros — 9,236 shy of the Mustang.

The Camaro “definitely could overtake Mustang as the segment leader by the end of the year,” Susan Docherty, GM’s vice president of U.S. sales, told reporters last month. She added: “We will hopefully do that with only nine months worth of sales versus 12.”

More production increases coming from GM

2010 Chevy Equinox

We have more good news from GM. The news on the Chevy Equinox in particular isn’t surprising. It’s a sharp-looking vehicle with a very reasonable price, so it’s perfect for the current climate.

General Motors is examining ways to ramp up production of four newer models that are selling well above its expectations, a GM spokesman said on Wednesday.

All four models are greatly revamped from previous versions and one, the Chevrolet Camaro, was resurrected five months ago after being out of production for seven years.

The four models are the Chevrolet Equinox, a crossover utility vehicle; Buick LaCrosse, a sedan; Cadillac SRX, also a crossover; and the Camaro, a sports car.

The potential increase in production at GM could prompt more workers to be recalled from layoff, a rare bright spot for the world’s No. 2 automaker just two months after it emerged from bankruptcy protection.

GM spokesman Tom Wilkinson said GM knew it would have to increase production of some of its models after a summer when inventory levels were at unsustainably low levels, but that these four models in particular had outstripped expectations.

GM said it will also look for a second production plant for the Equinox, which is now assembled at the CAMI Automotive plant in Ingersoll, Ontario, which GM owns with Suzuki Motor (7269.T). The Terrain is also built there.

Sales for the 2010 model Equinox were about 9,900 through September 15. The redesigned Equinox was launched in June.

September will be a critical month. It’s important that sales don’t fall off too much following the end of the cash for clunkers program.
